ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - A U.S. flag measuring nearly 1,700 square feet that has traveled to all 50 states to honor the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks will fly from Arlington National Cemetery on Tuesday.

The Patriot Flag is designed to honor not just the victims of 9/11 but also the U.S. military and the first responders to the attacks.

The flag is scheduled to fly at a 10 a.m. ceremony at the cemetery from an Arlington County fire truck.

It measures 30 by 56 feet and weighs 75 pounds.
